Executions → First public hanging of a woman in Iran

The first public hanging took place at dawn on the 19th of March 2001 when 30 year old Fariba Tajiani-Emamqoli and four men were put to death for drug trafficking in Tehran. Everyone of them died a painful and humiliating death, there being no effort made to minimise their suffering or make their execution in any way humane. Pictures of Fariba Tajiani-Emamqoli's hanging and those of male prisoners show that an American style coiled noose made from modern nylon rope is used and that the prisoner is either stood on a box which is pulled from under them or hoisted into the air by a crane jib as happened with Fariba.

The photographs are of Fariba Tajiani Imamgholi, 30, who was hanged on March 19, along with four men, in East Tehran's Khaksefid district. Tajiani was among hundreds of impoverished residents of Khaksefid, arrested on February 22 during a brutal raid by the State Security Forces who razed their homes and subsitence to the ground.


Early morning on March 19, the State Security Forces returned for another show of force. This time, they brought along five former residents of Khaksefid to hang them before the eyes of their neighbors. Fariba was sobbing, begging the judge to forgive her, but to no avail. She was taken up the crane, and moments later, she was no more!


Fariba was one of the first victims of a new wave of terror prevailing Iran and the first woman who was hanged in public, to terrify a weary population growing more disenchanted every day with its oppressive rulers.

Under Iran Revolutionary law young girls who were sentenced to death could not be executed if they were still virgins. Thus they were "married off" to Revolutionary Guards and prison officials in temporary marriages and then raped before their execution, to prevent them going to heaven. The Mullahs believed that these women were ungodly and did not deserve paradise in the next life, and that if they were deprived of their virginity it would ensure that they went to hell. Therefore on the night prior to execution, the condemned girl was injected with a tranquilliser and then raped by her guard(s). After the execution, the religious judge at the prison would write out a marriage certificate and send it to the victim's family along with a box of sweets.

Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
